Droids We're Looking For - Part 2

My students need these robots so that as they progress in our coding club they can advance their skills with more abilities.

My Students

I work at a Title I school in a rural community on the northern end of Stanly County in North Carolina. In the county that I teach, we have a poverty rate of nearly twenty percent and the median income has dropped 2.6% from 2015 to 2016. Many of my students come from families that did not further their education (eighty-three percent of those that are twenty-five or older are high school graduates but only sixteen percent have a four-year degree).

My Project

Students will learn an increasingly important skill, computer coding and programming. The various droids will allow students to gradually learn how to code. They will begin by learning the basics and use a drag and drop method to code the robots to perform basic functions.

As they advance in skill, they will begin writing their own code to program the robots.

When they become more comfortable, the initial members will begin recruiting more students to the club. They will demonstrate leadership by taking charge of the club, organizing meetings, being responsible for club materials, and working collaboratively to recruit new members and teaching them what they already know about coding.
